Destroyer Of Worlds

I am Atom, the building block of the universe. I have been spliced and placed into a warhead. You can’t stop me, you can’t ignore me. This is my story before the world burns.

Season 4, Episode 12

They said World War 1 was supposed to be the war to end all wars. After 40 million people died in over 30 nations between 1914 and 1918 you would think earthlings learned their lesson.Unfortunately one global war wasn’t enough to satisfy man’s hunger.So they polished their tanks and planes, counted their missiles and tried again in 1939. 

About twice as many died in the sequel, credit goes to advanced tanks, submarines, Jet fighters and of course the nuclear bomb. I’m not a pacifist if thugs were trying to break into my home to hurt my family you bet I will fight. But I would not go out of my way to burn down their relatives’ homes. 

In 1945 the first nuclear bomb was dropped on Hiroshima Japan. Thousands of ordinary citizens didn’t see it coming. A second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. They said if it wasn’t for the bombs the war would stretch on, they even said the bombs saved lives. It’s hard for me to believe that, but you may have a different opinion.
